Germany captain Philipp Lahm has announced his retirement from international football.

 

The 30-year-old Bayern Munich defender, who made his international debut 10 years ago, led his country to World Cup glory against Argentina in Rio de Janeiro last week in what was his 113th international appearance.

 

Lahm took over as captain for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, when Michael Ballack was injured, and played every minute of all seven games that Germany played on the way to glory in Brazil.

 

"I told Jogi Low about my decision to retire from international football on Monday," Lahm told Sport Bild.

 

"I'd been thinking about it over the course of last season. I am delighted that things all came together with this World Cup win. I gave DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach a call and thanked him and everybody else at the DFB for the last few years."

 

He will continue to play for Bayern, having captained them to a historic treble of the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League in 2013; he signed a new contract at the Allianz Arena this summer.

Can't believe he is only 30 tbh, seems to have been around for ever.

 

Probably wants his holidays with family after having to do internationals for so long.
